2014 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Acadia, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the GMC Acadia, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Traverse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the GMC Acadia.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Traverse is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Traverse takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the GMC Acadia, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the GMC Acadia, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Traverse as you will in the GMC Acadia.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Acadia.
